Awaiting Launch

by NASA

Published November 5, 2010


At NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the rotating service structure on Launch Pad 39A moves away from space shuttle Discovery. The structure provides weather protection and access to the shuttle while it awaits lift off on the pad. During the 11-day STS-133 mission, Discovery and its six crew members will deliver the Permanent Multipurpose Module, packed with supplies and critical spare parts, as well as Robonaut 2, to the orbiting laboratory. This will be Discovery's 39th and final mission, the 133rd Space Shuttle Program mission and the 35th shuttle voyage to the space station. Image credit: NASA/Troy Cryder Nov. 3, 2010
